What better way to unwind than in your own home cinema, with a blockbuster film on the big screen?

One of the key characteristics of a home theatre cinematic set up is the sound. Multiple surround-sound speakers immerse you in a sonic experience, every bit as thrilling as the visuals. That comes at a price though, and soundproofing is essential in order to enjoy your home cinema to the max, without the film soundtrack reverberating throughout your home, or into the neighbours.

Here are just a few ways we can City insulation can help

A multi-media room for all the family

Very often today, a home cinema room is more of a multi-media space for films, gaming and music, so creating a sound-tight room is essential for letting all the family enjoy their noisy pursuits. There are a host of techniques we use at City Insulation to ensure that an optimal environment is created for exceptional sound quality, great acoustics and privacy assured.

Treating the walls to minimise transmission

Our Independent Wall system and Clip Direct to Wall system are designed to minimise sound transmission through walls, creating a barrier between the home cinema and surrounding rooms.

From the ceiling to the floor

Our soundproofed ceiling systems and acoustic solutions lessen sound leakage and prevent sound reflections. By adding resilient channels or sound clips to decouple the ceiling from the structure, we reduce vibrations and further enhance soundproofing. We can also install soundproof underlayment or carpet padding to reduce impact noise from footsteps. Thick rugs and carpets also absorb sound reflections.

Sealing the room off

The thorough sealing of gaps, cracks, and openings in doors, windows, and walls can effectively seal these areas, preventing sound from leaking in or out of the home cinema. By upgrading windows and doors, for example replacing hollow-core doors with solid doors offer better sound insulation and secondary acoustic glazing further reduces unwanted external noises.

Sound isolation and acoustic techniques

We implement a wide range of sound isolation techniques, constructing double walls and using resilient channels and acoustic insulation. These create an isolated space in the room, reducing sound transmission to and from adjacent areas.
The addition of acoustic panels, diffusers, bass traps, and sound-absorbing materials are strategically placed in the home cinema. These treatments control sound reflections, improve clarity, and enhance the overall acoustics of the room.

Working with an audio-visual expert

City Insulation collaborates with a local Audio-Visual specialist, in order to offer a fully holistic service in home cinema. Together, we take care of everything, designing the appropriate dynamics for a room, combined with the very best equipment to budget so that you’re assured of an exceptional sound for cinema.

It’s also worth saying here that we work in collaboration with an audio visual specialist – they basically take care of the design and installation of all the AV so we can provide the customer with a full cradle to grave process (that’s not the right phrase but you’ll put it more eloquently than that!)

City Insulation relishes the opportunity to create soundproofed, acoustically designed cinema and multi-media rooms. Such spaces are our ultimate challenge, and we rise to the occasion to give you a unique space in your home that is a place to relax, entertain and to share quality family time.

I can't praise City Insulation enough they are very professional, informative, courteous and they certainly know their stuff. They completed our lounge and dining room soundproofing in two days, which was completed with great care and respect to our home and furnishings (thanks to a great installation team). Do yourself a favour and choose City Insulation, it's no surprise that they get regular 5 star ratings.

Adam & Rachel were professional, knowledgeable and genuine people to deal with. I knew nothing about sound proofing but they talked me through all my options to help me understand the best options for my particular wall. They were also really helpful on suggesting work that fitted within my budget, there were other more expensive options but they recommended the best package for me that would have the most impact not just the most expensive. The sound proofing they installed on my party wall to reduce noise from neighbours (screaming children, overly loud tv, shouting etc..) has been game... changing. Since being completed me and my partner can now sit and have a conversation without having to put music or tv on in background to drown out the neighbour noise. The work was very professional, the finishes excellent and all the lads took real care to protect existing furniture, carpets etc... The work was completed in a very professional manner and attention to detail was fantastic. Some firms do their bit and leave but they even arranged for other tradesmen to help complete the redecoration work after they had left i.e. plasterer, plumber (to re-mount a radiator) whose work was also of an equally excellent standard. I would highly recommend city insulation to anyone wanting to work with a truly professional business whose end product does exactly what it says on the tin! Thank you Adam & Rachel you were a pleasure to deal more

I recently used City Insulation to help with soundproofing my semi-detached house. I could hear my neighbours TV, door slamming and arguments, to the extent that I felt like I lived with them! City Insulation installed their ‘Independent Wall plus both upgrades’ system on every adjoining wall to my neighbours and the results have been great! The noise has been reduced by around 80% in the three rooms and I no longer feel the intrusion from next door. I knew nothing about soundproofing before the job was done, and City are not local to where I live so it was a bit of a’ leap of faith’.... However, Rachel has been fantastic in responding to all my queries, Adam was really knowledgable about getting the right solution for me and the installation team (Nick, Jack and Brad) were so efficient in getting the work done and to a really high standard. Thank you team for all your help - it’s really appreciated!read more
